PLEASE NOTE

We have made several changes to ensure your safety and well-being. In compliance with social distancing regulations, instead of utilising Zoofari buses to conduct tours we have developed unique guided walking tours especially for Zoofari guests. These tours are approximately 2km in distance and include regular stops. If you have restricted mobility please contact us to discuss further. The mornings and afternoons can be chilly, so apart from good walking shoes, don’t forget the winter woollies!
